Economic Mobility to Power A Strong Economy
Monday, June 24, 8:45 am
A key component of a healthy economy is ensuring that education and labor provide for equity and economic mobility. States must have clear goals and scalable strategies to further economic mobility in an economy that will require new and different skills and backgrounds. These strategies should start in the early years and carry through employment. This session will explore how states can promote workforce equity for low-and middle-income families, first-generation postsecondary students, students of color and students from rural areas.
